Continued Turkish Assault on Afrin Leaves Civilians Dead

The continued Turkish aggression on the Afrin area north of Aleppo has left more civilians dead and caused damage to homes and infrastructure.

Civilian sources told SANA that an elderly man was killed on Sunday when Turkish forces shelled the village of Zaitouna.

Since the beginning of the Turkish assault on Afrin, a number of massacres have been committed against civilians, while considerable damage was caused to the archeological sites, mosques, infrastructure and homes.
